I only remember going once but may have been other times. Exploring the lanes is fun.

Sorry about the boredom. =( What would you like to be doing?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 08:46 PM

I would like to be doing soo many things!
Like exploring different places but I have no money :(
My thoughts are just zooming about the place
I need a hobby!
I feel the urge to buy plants but a) I have no money and b) I'd probably kill any plant i get within a week!

nonperson 10-06-2021 09:07 PM

Plants are an investment but don't have to be expensive.

What about stuff on YouTube? Like exercise classes or learning a language or... I have no idea what else is on there but there has to be something that would catch your interest.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 09:09 PM

That's a really good idea!
I've always wanted to learn a language

Carer just turned up. Without having picked up my medication. Surprise surprise

nonperson 10-06-2021 09:18 PM

It'll prepare you for future adventures =)

Ah they are so organised. What was the reason for not doing it?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 09:22 PM


They said they were notified too late
I said I told them this morning and then called at 3pm and she looked very confused and said they weren't notified until after the pharmacy closed at 5pm :eyeroll:

nonperson 10-06-2021 09:45 PM

That age old problem of simple communication...

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 09:52 PM

I'm going to call my cpn tomorrow and tell her what has happened.
If I can't get rid of the carers right now then maybe she can call the pharmacy and let me pick up my own meds again!

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 11:16 AM

Good morning guys!

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 12:00 PM

Hi Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 12:14 PM

Hi tamo!
I'm good thanks! At the hairdressers! I am so excited!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 12:27 PM

What are you having done?

I'm ok but feeling anxious.

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 12:35 PM

I'm going bright!
Pink, purple, navy and turquoise!

Sorry you're feeling anxious. Do you have any coping skills for it?

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 12:47 PM


Yeah I've got a helpful list.

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 12:55 PM

That's good :)
I hope you feel less anxious soon!
Do you have any plans for today?

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 01:08 PM

I'm hoping to read a bit.

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 01:18 PM

Are you reading anything in particular?

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 01:31 PM

Lord of the Rings and St Teresa of Avila's Life.
Do you like reading?

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 01:38 PM


When I have the concentration i like reading.
When I was younger I'd get through tons of books!
Was always reading!

one_step_closer 11-06-2021 02:03 PM

Your new hair colours sound exciting Beckie!

Keep up the things that help with your anxiety Tamo. I hope you feel better as the day goes on.

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 02:08 PM

Thanks osc. How are you?

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 02:12 PM

It is very exciting lindsay!
The colours are on now!

How are you?

one_step_closer 11-06-2021 02:14 PM

Not great mentally. I wish there was someone I could talk to regularly.

Having my first Covid vaccine tomorrow so need to work out buses and times etc.

one_step_closer 11-06-2021 02:14 PM

Does it take a long time to get your hair done Beckie?

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 02:22 PM

I prefer trains to buses.

not_so_insig 11-06-2021 02:26 PM

Hello all. I am boiling but the other hand I am very sad. I felt quite ill last night due to the heat and couldn't sleep.

not_so_insig 11-06-2021 03:18 PM

tamobhuuta did you know that there's no Doctors on Monday, Wednesday and Friday next week due to the football?

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 04:13 PM

It took quite a while lindsay because it had to be bleached first.
But it's all done and I love it so much!!!

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 04:18 PM

I'm glad you like your hair :)

Yeah I know about next week, I'm very upset, obviously.

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 04:36 PM


Always sucks when your favourite programme gets cancelled for something as boring as football!

not_so_insig 11-06-2021 06:12 PM

Lorraine has it even worse because they're playing Scotland matches in her city and therefore there will be extra crowds.

nonperson 11-06-2021 06:19 PM

I want to see pics of Beckie's amazing sounding hair! =O

Is it faded with all those colours or crazy stripes or what?!

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 06:30 PM

Oh noo dawn! Poor Lorraine!

I'll post the pic in the compliments pic thread np!

Edit: it won't let me do it :'(

nonperson 11-06-2021 06:49 PM

Noooo, whyyy =(

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 06:54 PM

I don't knooww!!!
It just keeps saying 'upload failed' :(

nonperson 11-06-2021 06:56 PM

Is it too big?

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 06:58 PM

I've uploaded photos from my phone before and its been ok so I don't know why it's not working now!

nonperson 11-06-2021 07:07 PM

Well that sucks. =(

Don't know what to suggest!

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 07:08 PM

It does indeed!
Are there any photo hosting type sites left? I could upload it to one of those and then type in the url?

nonperson 11-06-2021 07:18 PM

Yep - I use imgbb.

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 07:19 PM

I've done it!
You should be able to see it now via the link!

not_so_insig 11-06-2021 08:19 PM

My postcard to Russia arrived today!

nonperson 11-06-2021 08:59 PM

Hope they're excited to receive it too.

Cacoethes 12-06-2021 10:19 AM

Morning guys!

tamobhuuta 12-06-2021 12:03 PM

Hi Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 12-06-2021 12:10 PM

Hi tamo!
I'm good thanks! Just on way to see Jasmine.
The market is heaving today!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 12-06-2021 12:24 PM

I hope you have a good time with Jasmine.

I am ok, trying to decide whether to exercise.

Cacoethes 12-06-2021 12:25 PM

Thank you :)

Hmm. Do what feels right!
It is a bit hot now so maybe wait until its cooled down a bit?

tamobhuuta 12-06-2021 12:33 PM

I wouldn't exercise until the afternoon anyway.

Cacoethes 12-06-2021 12:35 PM

That's good
Don't want to be passing out or anything!
And remember to stay hydrated!
